Hi. We do that migration from Postgres 9.0 (x86_64, Centos 6) to Postgres 9.6 (power, SUSE Enterprise 12).
The best way to us was to do a backup (pg_dump -Fc ...) and restore using several cores (pg_restore -j N ..., where N equals to the cores/jobs to be used). How many jobs launch to restore depends on: the number of cores available and the I/O throughput. Make some test to get the right number of jobs. Our restore task took around four hours. We had a downtime of seven hours. Other options are: * You can try a logical replication (maybe pg_logical). * Backup/restore without stop and then, make a downtime and synchronize the changed data between tables. We preferred the failsafe option and made a full downtime and we done the job from Saturday to Sunday with a holiday Monday (It is 24x7x365 business, and get a downtime is somewhat difficult). Best regards. Carlos M.
